I heart the Internet

I was getting Carolyn’s (rockin) Christmas present today and so when I went to checkout from the website that shall not be named, there was a place to put in a promo or coupon code. So I thought well let’s go searching. I typically do searches like these but I normally don’t have much success.

And sure enough the first 4 or 5 codes I found were either invalid, expired, for purchase amounts more than what I was spending, or some combination thereof.

But then I found one! Boom – free shipping! Saved me $8.

I can’t tell you what the code is or what website it is for because that might spoil the super awesome surprise.

The price of milk at UDF

Okay – gotta share this. I called up UDF this morning. They have an ongoing promotion where if you fill up with 8 gallons of gas, you get a gallon of milk for pretty cheap. But the price changes every month, so sometimes it’s a good deal and sometimes it’s not that great. So I called up this morning to see what their price for December was.

Guy answered and I asked the question. He responded that it was $2.39 but if you wanted to buy 2, it was cheaper not to use the gas receipt and just buy them regular price, which was 2/$5.

I paused and scratched my head and asked, “But isn’t 2/$5 $2.50 each?” He said yes but then mentioned that 2 gallons with a gas receipt was $5.38. I again paused to scratch my head while he followed up with “Do you get what I’m sayin?”.

At this point I just said yes and hung up. Perhaps gives you some insight as to why he might be working at UDF?

I will post a followup if it turns out that there is a limit of 1 with the gas receipt, though that would be a change in how the program works.
